2062EN_mockupcover_normalA few weeks ago I released a post in regards to my finishing of the Troubleshooting vSphere Storage book.  This has been a lot of work and I’ve had a lot of help from the community in getting this book completed.

Writing a book is not a simple task.  It involves research, lab time, and focus.  And then there is the editing, both grammatically and technically – which can be even more work than the writing itself! 

I tried to gear this book towards the vSphere Admin.  The “jack of all trades” system administrator.  Hopefully readers will find the knowledge and how to within the book to solve common storage issues that tend to spring up within a vSphere environment.  The book is broken into three main subjects of focus; troubleshooting connectivity, troubleshooting contention and troubleshooting capacity.  If you’d like to purchase the book you can do so by visiting the landing page on Packt’s website and following the various channels.

Tis the season for winning

That said – Tis the season right?  The season for giving!  That’s why I’m happy to announce that I have three eBook versions of Troubleshooting vSphere Storage to giveaway over the next week or so.  A little light reading to enjoy over the xmas holidays!

As you can see by the little widget below, I’ve opted to use PunchTab to gather the entries for this contest.  It’s hectic trying to follow Twitter hashtags and what not so I thought “Hey, why not use a CaaS (contest as a service) solution.  Sorry for all the PunchTab branding but this is what you get when you use a free service 🙂

So how do you enter?  It’s easy, leave a comment, send a tweet and follow me!  That will get you three entries!  Just make sure you do it through the widget below.  I’ll have PunchTab pick three random winners at the end of the contest (end of Sunday, December 15th) and announce the winners shortly thereafter.  Good luck and let me know what you think of the book!
